A rule-breaker with a fiery attitude, Ella always wore her heart on her sleeve. Then she left everything behind to go to college, where she transformed into someone who follows the rules, keeps everything together, and hides all her problems. Now it's summer break and she has nowhere else to go but home. But once there, Ella fears that everything she's worked so hard to bury might resurface-especially with Micha living right next door.
Smart, sexy, and confident, Micha can get under Ella's skin like no one else. He knows everything about her, including her darkest secrets. If he tries to tempt the old Ella to return, he will be impossible to resist. But what Ella doesn't realize is that when she left, she took a piece of Micha's heart with her. Now he's determined to win back the girl he lost, no matter what it takes.
"The Secret of Ella and Micha is a passionate exploration of the highs and lows of young love. Written for the budding, college-age crowd looking for something a little saucier than the standard romance of YA fare, Jessica Sorensen’s first book in the Ella and Micha series places her in the first generation of contemporary romance authors. Sexy and vibrant, the story’s lovers, Ella and Micha, are just what we need them to be: flawed, but well intentioned. Surrounded by an eclectic group of friends and family, all of whom make us laugh and grimace by turns, Ella and Micha are forced to confront a tangled web of secrets before they can find happiness together. Sorensen manages to capture us early, and leave us breathless with every kiss, touch, and tense moment. For readers discovering that life is much more than the four walls of high school, this is a story not to be missed."
